After the delights of enormous string libraries, providing broad brush stroke approaches to writing, which have characterised recent film, gaming and TV music to some extent, Spitfire are at last proud to present a new set of brushes. The finest of sable brushes, if you will, to provide you with the tools you need to write detailed and focussed string parts that have a personality and style that represents your personality, that expresses your creative will and provides you with fresh pastures of experimentation.

Spitfire presents Sable.

Part of a new, long-term project entitled THE BRITISH MODULAR LIBRARY providing composers with the ability to add fine aspects of extreme detail, musical expression, beauty and focus to their work. To write music that musicians love to play and to get the most out of smaller ensembles and the wealth of timbral colour and character they can add to any project. After many years of development experience Spitfire will present this library with a user interface and set of features unprecedented in any library to date. With 7 mic positions, recorded at 96k through vintage valve and ribbon mics to tape through Neve preamps and Prism convertors, and presented at 48k, 24bit in Kontakt format, and additionally three extremely useful 'mixed' versions presented in Stereo and 5.1 Surround.

Sable is presented in modular volumes and consists of the finest players London has to offer, playing in the hall at Air Studios, regarded as one of the greatest scoring stages in the world.

Sable features 4 x 1st Violins, 3 x 2nd Violins (totally different players seated in their correct positions), 3 x Violas, 3 x Cellos and 3 x Contrabasses.

Sable volume 1, due for release in February 2013, weighs in at over 100GB (in uncompressed WAV format -- release format will be compressed NCW) and over 55,000 samples. (5.1 Surround option downloadable separately to reduce download time and conserve disk space.)

It features 'essential articulations' for Violin 1 and Cellos. Volume 2, due for release April 2013 features Violin 2, Violas and Contrabasses, and then Volume 3, due for release June 2013 features 'extended articulations' for Violin 1 and Cellos.

More information coming soon.

Here's the pricing structure of Sable. We've been working on this a while, to ensure we offer our customary opening offer, but also to reward early adopters for the full package!


[u]SABLE PRICING:[/u]

SABLE VOL 1 (V1, VC): RRP £399
SABLE VOL 2 (V2, Va, CB): RRP £399
SABLE VOL 3 (V1, VC extended): RRP £199

Total cost RRP £997

DISCOUNT STRUCTURE:

Vols 1 and 2 will have an introductory price of £299 on release lasting two weeks. Vol 3 will not have an introductory price period.

(If you buy separately during the introductory periods you'll get the full package for £299, £299, £199 = £797)

EARLY ADOPTER OFFER: for people who buy Vol 1 on release but also want to preorder the other 2 volumes: they get ALL 3 VOLS at 30% OFF!! = £697. These EARLY ADOPTERS will also get a 20% discount voucher to use off any future purchase!

This represents a saving on the total Retail price of 30%.... or £300..... and a discount on buying all three during the offer periods of £100.

This showcases the legatos -- we've been tweaking them as you know, and the first update will be out within the next week.
